1. ACTING! – Name the U.S. president who signed one of the following acts into law

I. National Labor Relations Act (1935)
J. Federal-Aid Highway Act (1956)

Q1 ANSWERS
Wrong answers – 15 points
J. FDR
Gamawire


Wow - huge typo on the first question. I had narrowed down my choice to using either DDE or FDR, and I must have just mixed up the letter responses when I chose my final answer.

Ugh! I figured as much. I like hosting these things, but I really do hate marking people wrong!

Now that this has been revealed, curious what others think. Is Yorick a character in Hamlet? I'm probably going to finish near the bottom anyway, so it wouldn't have mattered.

A quick check of the dramatis personae for Hamlet shows no Yorick. Yorick is dead at the start of the play, so he doesn't fit the category. He's really just a prop - a skull - and not even a talking skull!

I just wonder why I chose Pinterest for the next one even though I knew it's gonna be the obvious sheep. :oops:
Pinterest ain't the sheep
It'll be whatever I said, no doubt. :cry:
Q5 results posted. I was gonna do this tomorrow, but you made me feel sorry for you ;)
Thanks for the early results. :D

I thought Pinterest would be the answer many would think others wouldn't know.

Hen Peck Of Pickled Peppers - I've only heard 'henpeck' used in reference to nagging spouses ;)

Not that it matters because I've been scoring high everywhere else, but I've always called it henpecking, and I see plenty of common-person usage of the phrase on Google, even if not a "dictionary definition".

Even though it would result in a lot of scoring changes due to hunt-and-peck already being the sheep, I request a reconsideration.

Happy to reconsider. The fact that two people responded henpeck for hunt and peck did give me pause, but I made a ruling based on Merriam-Webster. I also brought up this question at a July 4th BBQ and everyone said no, but that could be a regional bias.

Please PM me with any references you found supporting henpeck

Sent.

I have no idea if it's regional or not; I grew up in New Hampshire and live in Indiana; not sure where clt013 is from. I just know I had heard henpeck enough for it to somehow overtake hunt-and-peck in my brain.
